Caution! Frame will fall off during ride!
Description states, "bolting on backside means no exposed mounting hardware"...HA! Frame does not "bolt" on & mounting system provided is not functional. Otherwise, frame would be excellent quality for price. Frame comes with 4 tiny mounting SCREWS which are about an inch (if that) long, thin & threaded on both ends...equally tiny nuts also provided. One end of 4 screws go into back of frame & line up with 4 holes in license plate. On my bike, 2 upper holes are used to mount plate to bike, so maybe I should've only used 2 bottom holes/screws to mount frame to plate. Here's the embarrassing part...since screws seemed inadequate & frame looked bad pushed out at top by bolts, I removed the bolts & used the 4 screws/nut provided to mount frame and plate. YEP! STUPID! Screws/nuts seemed tight enough, but yep, you guessed it...a few hrs into 1st ride after install, stopped for gas & both frame & license plate were gone. Mount system obviously isn't able to stay secure with bike vibration. Even if I replaced top 2 plate bolts with flatheads bolts & used only 2 bottom holes/screws to mount frame to plate, no doubt I would've still lost the frame. What a shame. It's a great look, but not functional. DK offers quality products, they should remove this one from their site until some engineer comes up with a secure mounting system design. Expensive lesson for me (frame cost plus license replacement fees).
